Dems and the City

Edward Norton loves hot, liberal actionPhotograph by Patrick McMullan

Like you, Sex and the City co-star Cynthia Nixon and Liberalism in Hollywood co-star Edward Norton are Americans with American worries. Unlike you, however, they're also Americans that people will pay to be in the same room with. This may have applied to you on occasion — a wedding or a bar mitzvah, for instance — but for them it's pretty much the case anytime they need it to be. Like right now, in this crucial time before Election Day.

Norton, who brownnosedly interviewed Eliot Spitzer in the October issue of Interview, will continue to assist the financially lagging gubernatorial candidate with a fund-raiser this very evening. Nixon is stumping tomorrow for the Working Families Party and reminding us that "sexually explicit emails alone are never enough to take back Congress. We need to move beyond scandal and support innovative strategies that will help Democrats win." Always in character. That's fun.

At Nixon's side will be Congressman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer, State Senator Eric Schneiderman, barely incumbent State Assemblywoman Linda Rosenthal, and City Councilwoman Gale Brewer.

Attendees can give at various levels of support, including "Miranda" ($1,000); "Carrie" ($500); "Mr. Big" ($250); "Steve the bartender" ($100); or if you're strapped for cash, "Miranda's husband Steve's mom who went nuts and ate pizza from a trash can" ($50).
